Employment and financial worries caused by the Covid-19 pandemic differ among demographic groups, according to a deep analysis into the results of the latest ASA Workforce Monitor® online survey conducted by The Harris Poll.
People of color are more likely to be concerned about a variety of employment-related issues, such as finding a job, needing new skills to land a job, transitioning careers or roles, and the possibility of losing a job.
“The potential severity of the negative economic impact of Covid-19 has not been the same for everyone in the U.S. during the pandemic,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “For millions of people, temporary and contract work is a means to address their very real employment and financial concerns. Staffing agencies across the U.S. are hiring now and are ready to help get the nation back to work.”
